. >> although lindsey graham, i interviewed him earlier this week. he is part of what they call that caucus of common sense, at least on this issue he made it clear he is ready to work out a big picture deal. let me play this little clip. >> i think the only way out is a big deal. republicans are not going to raise revenue to pay for sequestration. and i don't believe we can really do -- >> you mean raise taxes? >> yeah, eliminating deductions and loopholes, count me in for that but put the money on the debt. >> right, that is the framework of a deal that is out there. further revenue coupled with entitlement reform. the reality is what lindsey graham is saying, republicans can't get what they prized most, the entitlement reform that will slow the growth of government without president obama's signature for the next four years. and the only way to get that is by tying it to revenue. and if you think about the president's long-term goals here, accelerating economic growth delivers better outcomes for the key initiatives is critical. and all of these constant land mine explosions are serving

and they're saying they were caught totally off guard. lindsey graham late yesterday on this move. >> we're putting the administration on notice. we think that sneaking this guy into the country clearly going around the intent of congress when it comes to enemy combatants will be challenged. bill: erick erickson, editor-in-chief redstate.com and fox news contributor here in new york. good morning to you. you busted out of georgia. >> good morning. bill: welcome back to new york here. this is usama bin laden's son-in-law. he is in custody in new york city. he will face a judge through some legal proceeding today. why not send him to gitmo? >> they should but this administration doesn't have a good policy on containment in gitmo. they want to shut it down. they know they can't. they can't blow them all up with drones so this will be a trial. what they tried to do with khalid sheikh mohammed, there was national outcry over that so they sneaked him into new york. it pains me to say nice things about lindsey graham after the tirade about rand paul yesterday but he is right. democrats and repu

on the table. here's what i think the president is up to. there are senators like lindsey graham who are willing to put more revenue on the table in exchange for entitlement changes, a decade or more away from now. i think that you could see a deal where they do something on new revenues matched with entitlement cuts and then keep the $1.2 trillion covered by sequestration, but reorder them. decide that different programs are going to get cut, maybe more get cut in the out years, say not this year and next year but in the other eight years that are covered by sequestration. you could see that being part of a deal. >> yeah. putting it another way, we're really actually not that far from something that makes sense. if you got another 400 to $600 billion in revenues and you rearranged that $1.2 trillion to include something sensible on entitlements and restore some of these stupid discretionary cuts, you would be at $4 trillion of deficit reduction that a lot of us feel is not all we hoped for but enough to at least sleep at night. >> so where are we? break it down. >> we're right now a

lindsey graham, for instance, is saying we can still get a grand bargain. he wants the president and the speaker to go back to where they were back in 2011 and pick that up and deal with entitlements and perhaps more revenues because of closing loopholes. should your party come to the table on the issue of increased revenues? >> you know, i think it's a little hard to imagine after january where the highest -- the biggest tax increase in american history took place and then go back to say we have a revenue problem. i think the focus -- >> no wiggle room there at all? >> there may be. if the president's sincere about dealing with our structural problems. but the thing that we could all agree on is how do we create high sustained economic growth for starters, and how can we get back to a degree of normalcy where, like, budgets are passed? i'm not talking about ten-year estimations, but going to the new normal being the house and the senate pass a budget and there's a compromise and the president signs it into law. >> this all gets to the dynamic in washington right now. you are pas
